Restorative Justice

The WA-PCJJ supports communities in their efforts toward building collaborative community-based community justice responses to juvenile crime that incorporates restorative justice practices and principles. Such a response focuses on a balanced and restorative approach that holds juvenile offenders accountable to the people and communities they have harmed, enhances community safety and security, and provides offender rehabilitation and reintegration.
